[11-May-16] Oceanographer Peter Gaube describes the conductivity, temperature, depth (CTD) sensor to a group of invited bloggers aboard the deck of the R/V Atlantis during a special social media event. During the North Atlantic Aerosol and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) field campaign, CTDs will be used to measure sea water density surfaces 'like a layer cake' from the ocean surface down to 1000m in depth.
